The Pursgloves of Westminster - [WMIN]

The City of Westminster has been the seat of British Government since 1200AD.  It is also the main residence of the Royal Family centred around the Abbey of West Minster.  The Palace of Westminster for much of its history was the main royal residence.  Until the 16th century, the City of London and the City of Westminster were separate conurbations.  By the 17th century, the intervening land has been completely built up.
